Our focus in our New Year assembly last week was ‘re-connection’. Influential figures from the world of business, sport, politics and religious leaders including representatives from the Christian, Jewish Sikh, Hindu and Muslim communities sent an open letter to the Nation over the New Year period. It read:  ‘Let go of bitter divisions of the past 10 years and make 2020 the decade of re-connection’. The Archbishop of Canterbury picked up on this theme in his New Year message saying ‘let’s resolve to reconnect to reach out to just one person we don’t know or from whom we have drifted apart. Pick up the phone, send them a text and let’s begin cementing our unity one brick at a time’. Such a New Year’s resolution seems a simple but significant way to work together and create a great decade. As I welcome you back to School and to a new Term, I wish you a happy, healthy and prosperous 2020 – may the roaring 20s not disappoint!
